Before Xbox Game Pass came along, many people might pass over indie games entirely. There are only so many games most of us can afford to buy in a year. So we often go for the tried and tested AAA options from the big developers we trust. Even though indie games usually cost a lot less than their high-budget counterparts, it can still seem a much riskier purchase, which is a shame, because there is a tonne of interesting titles out there made by smaller teams.

Thankfully, with a subscription service like Xbox Game Pass, we can try as many of these indie games as we like without much worry. You can simply download it or boot it up via the cloud and play it for an hour or so. If it's not your cup of tea, you can move on to something else, and if it clicks with you, happy days. You've discovered a new game that might have otherwise passed you by.

However, time is still precious, and with so many options available on Xbox Game Pass, it can be tricky to know where to start. That's where we come in. We've compiled a list of the 10 best indie titles you can enjoy through Xbox Game Pass. Naturally, we will update this list when new options arrive or take away any games that get removed from the service. Without further ado, hit the big blue button below to check out our picks.
